Workshop | Early 20th Century Women Artists and Collage
November 10 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm$150
Explore women artists who embody early 20th century avant-garde art movements through their innovative approaches to collage and assemblage.
Led by Artist Kim Rae Taylor
This pop-up workshop is framed within art history, specifically to look at women artists who embody early 20th century avant-garde art movements through their innovative approaches to collage and assemblage. In examining these modernist artists, participants will learn about the themes and techniques they utilized in the creation of unique imagery. Participants will be introduced to the following artists: Meret Oppenheim, Mina Loy, Claude Cahun, Hannah Höch, and Sonia Terk-Delauney.
The workshop portion is hands-on experience combining collage and paint media. The use of both paint and collage elements provide an accessible way for participants to freely engage with the process while finding an unexpected pathway to the creation of 4—5 small 2D works. Collage media, combined with paint, pencils, and other media will be employed. Participants will be provided with some materials and will receive a packet of handouts for reference.
All Materials are provided, but attendees are asked to bring their own Collage media that includes colored paper, fabric remnants, magazine clippings, wallpaper scraps, vinyl lettering, photocopies and vintage photographs that they may wish to include in their artwork.
Deadline to register is November 7th.
This Workshop is in two parts:
Part 1 Wednesday November 10th, 6 – 9pm
Part 2 Wednesday November 17th, 6 – 9pm
Cost per student is $150.00 *** Registration covers both parts***
